We may have been quite but our silence was us busy working on good stuff for the future.

This week we changed our identity to reflect who we are now and where we want to be.  The full committee unanimously agreed to change our name to "Bangkok Pool Community"  

Planning ahead it is also resolved to see if merging of smaller leagues can be achieved. One community operating in a way to suit all parties is what people want.

To bond the Spirit of Pool Connecting People as our mission, our website is being updated to use BangkokPoolCommunity.com  The picture above is a draft banner.

The final matches as the Sukumvit Social Pool League will be played this week with the CUP finals. Then the party to award winners and enjoy some fun is set for Monday, August 26

This initiative is still in its embryo stage of developed. As a Bangkok Pool Community project underway its aim is to have a live streaming channel for pool in Asia.

In a nutshell www.Cuesportslive.asia is being set up to broadcast international and local events to generate sponsor value. Mark White, who some of you may have seen wandering around with cameras and talking into microphones has already done a couple of useful trials that are being encouraged by potential sponsors

Having this communication platform is a value add influencer for the key value we have in the Bangkok Pool Community to host vibrant international and high level sponsored events.  

On the horizon to make that all real, The Bangkok Pool Community is planning what we hope will become an annual international event starting next January. We referred to that earlier as IMPACT series.

The  Asia Pool Challenge is in Bangkok in August next year too, for its 10th anniversary.

Our ambition for all this is to transform Bangkok to be known as The Pool Capital of Asia

Bangkok Heat APC and International events

Bangkok Heat committee and players after  a 6 months qualifying series are now assembled and ready to head for Jakarta on Aug 22 - 25 to bring back the Asia Pool Challenge Cup.

Qualifying this year was opened to all comers to have a go to represent Bangkok Pool Community internationally. The very successful qualifying series has focussed awareness of the event in our ranks to bond it more along with surfacing its potential value to the community and its sponsors.  

 

Here are the final qualifying results.

Cup Finalists playing this week are

OUR SPONSORS FOR SONGKRAN SEASON 2019

At the foot of this post is the full list including hosting sponsors who make our community possible.

Our sponsors are our friends, many of whom also play in our teams. They invest time and resources in facilities and equipment and host our teams. Sponsorship pays for the trophies and running our league entirely. And all that for the price of a few drinks and buying their products when we need them.

The Bangkok Pool Community regards this partnership as special and encourages players to support and recommend our sponsors as a first choice.
